Cold night and room with no heater. Poorly insulated. Like in a tent. Did not sleep well due to cold despite extra blanket. Overpriced for what it is. Breakfast only available from 9.00 At 45euros a night this is not acceptable

Not impressed by the man who met us on our arrival. It was a cold night but he could have been a bit more cheerful. Room was fine, comfortable bed and beautiful sunlight over the bay in the morning. No shower gel or soap in the bathroom. I rang reception twice within a short time after our arrival but there... More

Arrived to a cold, damp, mouldy room. No Wifi in bedrooms. Owners the rudest people I've ever met. Were extremely rude and disrespectful about other guests too behind their backs. Had to leave at 10pm due to the owners' aggressive rude attitude (considered calling law enforcement for protection). My credit card was used fraudulently in this b&b, had to report... More

Sarto1, Owner at Ferryview Guesthouse, responded to this review

These two people arrived prior to the heating comming on. They wre immediatly provided with a blow heater for their room, while the heating warmed up their room. There is certainly no dampness in their room or bathroom for that matter. They had booked their room for a two day stay and were informed that the WiFi was only available... More

If it were possible to award half stars, I would give this b&b two and a half because it was below average, but above poor. We had two nights here on our way home from the West of Ireland and chose it from the Internet as the price was reasonable. The decor was rather dated and the whole place did... More

We booked here for 2nts and had confirmation via email but when we arrived we were told the hotel was fully booked and that our dates had been wrongly put down in the booking book. This put us at a great inconvenience as we had to find another hotel to stay. The owner was very apologetic but the damage was... More

The place was very dated and décor could be improved. That said the rooms and beds were clean. As we had an early start and would be leaving before breakfast service we were given access to kitchen to make tea and toast, cereals were left out. Could not access Wifi using the number provided.

After some problems with the booking, caused by an internet server-breakdown, we arrived but the guesthouse was fully booked out. The friendly owner had sent an email but we were already on our way to the guesthouse. So they offered us the livingroom to spend the first night in for free. After a 10days camping-trip trough the countryside it was... More
